Noted music producer DALLAS AUSTIN is a happy man. He is back home in ALTANTA following a conviction and sentence of 4 years in prison in DUBAI for drug possession. He can thank his lawyer JOEL KATZ for calling in the help of Sen ORRIN HATCH, and superstars QUINCY JONES, and LIONEL RICHIE, who all went to bat for AUSTIN. Their words got AUSTIN a pardon, and his release.
AUSTIN was in DUBAI for a three day birthday party for supermodel NAOMI CAMPBELL when he was detained at the airport for possession of a small amount of cocaine.
